"Touch a Truck"

A local park had an event a couple of weeks ago called "Touch a Truck". They had all sorts of vehicles there that the kids could not just see, but get in, climb on, etc. It was SO neat and the kids, especially Rhett, loved it. There were firetrucks, police cars, dump trucks, SWAT team trucks, and more-and they were all the REAL DEAL! Here are some pictures from the day:

Hollace "driving" a bulldozer
Rhett "driving" a fork-lift
They got to pet this police horse..........

and even try out these Police "hogs"

Rhett loved climbing all over this huge tractor/combine thing

He wasn't afraid of being up so high at all.

Thad did not have such a good time. He would be just relaxing, minding his own business, and then some kid would honk a horn, or blow a siren and he would just SCREAM!. It really was very loud and there was no warning when it was coming, so it would really startle him! Poor guy.
Rhett had a better time than it appears from some of the pictures. For some reason he wouldn't smile for me when I tried to take pictures. When he saw me with a camera he would just frown...

**Poor Rhett has the hand, foot & mouth virus. His mouth is SOOOO sore. He can't eat or even drink anything. He is just miserable, so the rest of us are too! He cried most of yesterday, and today doesn't seem to be starting off any better. He didn't sleep well at all the last two nights either. He and Hollace had this once before I think, quite a while back, but not nearly this bad! It is SO sad. I hate that I can't do anything for him! I am just trying to get him to drink, so he doesn't get dehydrated!- I SO hope and pray that little Thad doesn't get it!!

Awwww...poor Rhett, how awful. I also hope and pray that Thad doesn't get it that would be horrible if he wouldn't take his bottles. I'm glad you guys had a good time checking out all the different kinds of vehicles. Poor little Thad and the sirens, I wouldn't like them either.
